At the Monday, Oct. 19 Syosset Central School District Board of Education meeting, the board celebrated Columbus Day a little late. Third graders from every elementary school in the district performed a short play about the life of Christopher Columbus, complete with two songs. While some of the performers needed a little prompting to remember their lines, the play was a huge success; it was very close to standing-room only in the South Woods Middle School auditorium. There was also plenty of enthusiasm for Board of Education Appreciation Week.

More than 1.5 million entrants in over 21,000 U.S. high schools nationwide entered the 2009 Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The highest scorers in each state were designated semifinalists, in numbers representing less than one percent of each state’s high school graduating class. This year 16,000 were selected as semifinalists. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to become Merit finalists, making them eligible to receive college scholarships.
Tina Springer and her two children, Amber, 14, and Hunter, 4, received the home they longed for in Bay Shore last week.

During the construction period, Syosset teachers and students were joined by additional volunteers from Long Island businesses, Henry Schein and Estee Lauder. “The Syosset students have participated in many of Habitat’s Student Build houses,” said Les Scheinfeld, associate director of Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk.
